emissions where we can. so, we are coming here to you as kind of the vanguard of this, but eventually this will be a very mundane and tedious rule making process pushing you to have more clean power, have more local power and reduce emissions. we're trying to get this started sooner than later [inaudible]. >> thank you. next speaker, please. good afternoon again, commissioners. eric brooks. so, i just wanted to encourage the lafco in any energy endeavors that it goes forward with to definitely -- since he spoke today, you probably know that one of the recommendationses we made to you folks is to use department of environment staff as well. we've seen that they have been ready to go on program like cleanpowersf and doing other renewable energy projects and efficiency projects and their involvement will be key. along the same lines, in a little bit of a critical vein, it would be good to know what's
10:01 pm
going on with the climate action plan that was recently put out because originally it mentioned cleanpowersf, among other things, and now it's not the same. it would be good to find out when we're going to have a hearing on that and maybe in lafco if necessary. and then finally, one of the thing that will make it possible to fund the clean energy is to develop a public bank and we hadn't heard much about that. so, just wanted to get the status on that from chair avalos and perhaps staff. thanks. >> thank you very much. we will have a hearing on march 31st related to the climate protection plan, and that was also something that my pdf, the original pdf that went out on that, jeremy pollack in my office searched for the words cleanpowersf in that document and he found that it was actually embedded in there in

[gavel] >> and do we have any other items before us? >> actually, chair avalos, can i just make a comment -- >> commissioner mar. >> what mr. holtz man said
10:03 pm
about the role of 350 bay area. i'm one of the members of the bay area air quality management district and have been for several years ~. i would just caution you about speaking of yourself and your organization as a vanguard. there are many environmental justice groups that have been working on issues of climate change and climate justice for many, many years. i think 350 bay area is a critical organization that's really been taking a lead on many levels and i would just caution you to speak in those terms of yourself. the young people that have been at the white house and were today protesting the key stone excel i think are really taking a lead. and my hope is that the whole environmental movement can really embrace younger people, environmental justice groups, native american nations and others as we all move forward together. but i really appreciate all the work of [speaker not understood] strong and really better commitments from the bay area air quality management district and the leadership that you guys show, but also in the interest of building a

10:27 pm
local a ftc f t. so again, we all know there are great challenges to observer about beau loved college college of san francisco for its accreditation. city college i don't need to reaccount it's on the only portal for hire education and for workforce training. it's also one of san francisco's largest employers and a great customer to san francisco's small businesses. we must sustain our san francisco city college. the news is good the chancellor is well aware of what needs to be accomplished to save this month important campus and district of the one hundred and
10:28 pm
12 if i can be bold. so he has every incentive and i'm consist it will get down. in spite of the of the good news and the progress we're making that there are some who would otherwise enroll in san francisco who are not. we have to make sure we do that we've lost 16 percent of enforcement. to positive expectation accreditation will be sustained and the message is everyone who wants to enroll should and we'll make sure no one is going to get dropped and we have to stabilize funding and that's the point of this bill. without the stabilization of funding what happens is what is the known as a visible cycle.
10:29 pm
students don't enroll and as a result faculty have to be leadoff and it gets smaller and smaller. that's why we have to stabilize the funding. the bill makes it relating minor amendment there's a single year of funding stabilization in california statute. for example, in the 2013-2014 school year the funding level is the aim as 1213. could leaguer to call 2013-2014 the base funding but 2014-2015 we'll stick with the funding and going into 2015-2016 the funding will be no less than that 75 percent and then 90 percent and
10:30 pm
the last year out will be in the morning that 85 percent. i say, no less than it's our hope as we get to the outer years reinforcement will be on the rise but it's a safety net a basin so we can work to restore enrollment and all through the process of sustaining accreditation. what will trigger the use will be a significant risk to accreditation. so we know that criteria is already met by san francisco. in the bill will be a second criteria. i want to clarify that e
